  Netsurf is likely the closest thing you will get to a full fledge browser.

  If iBrowse and Netsurf doesn't work, I will vnc to my linux box to get on a modern browser. TwinVNC is likely the best Amiga 68k VNC client out there.

Yes TwinVNC is a good solution until some miracle in form of browser update for 68k coming...

What is wrong with IBrowse? Just be sure to always ask for the mobile version of sites like m.facebook.com. Works like a champ and no JavaScript bloat slowing you down.

  There is more to the web than Facebook, and even if a site has a mobile site it's not entirely certain that it will be friendly with old browsers... it's sad most web stores that sell Amiga parts and accessories are not iBrowse friendly or the shopping cart software behind them.
